Paper Abstract

Various structural materials have been used in construction projects using stones, concretes, and steels materials. Among of these projects, concretes may use widely because concretes have high compressive strength, and comparatively easy maintenance and management. Reinforced concrete Buildings will be deteriorated as time passed. These problems will be accelerated by propagation of cracks. In order to manage such cracks, time, efforts and expense are required. In this study, leakages of fluorescence and adhesive material were investigated using glass sensors that were embedded in a model beam and column. In addition, currents in glass pipe sensor were observed to find leakage of liquid in glass pipes. Progressive cracks were generated by fracture of glass pipe sensor. In this investigation, a reinforcement clothing system was wrapped for a glass pipe sensor. The glass pipe sensor that can make control and reinforce cracks simultaneously.
